About this book

Thanks to the application of new technologies such as whole-genome sequencing, analysis of transcriptome and proteome of insect pest to agriculture, great progress has been made in understanding the life style, reproduction, evolution and nuisance to crops caused by insect pests such as aphids, planthoppers, and whiteflies. We believe that time has come to summarize progress and to have a glance over the horizon. In Management of Insect Pests to Agriculture experts in the field discuss novel means to increase the different kinds of resistances of plants to better limit the effects of pest, to understand and disturb the hormonal regulation of embryogenesis, molting, metamorphosis and reproduction, to determine the function of insect genes in diverse processes such as metabolism, interaction with plants, virus transmission, development, and adaptation to a changing environment. The knowledge presented here is discussed with the aim of further improving control strategies of insect pests.


1. Plant-herbivore interactions in the era of big data
2. Proteomic insights into the hidden world of phloem sap feeding
3. Genomics of phenotypic plasticity in aphids
4. Hormonal regulation of development and reproduction
5. Revelations on the regulatory mechanisms in moth sex-pheromone signals
6. Interactions between insect vectors and propagative plant viruses
7. Interactions between the whitefly Bemisia tabaci and begomoviruses: biological and genomic perspectives
8. Functional genomics in the whitefly Bemisia tabaci species complex
9. Plant immunity: connecting the dots between microbial and Hemipteran immune responses
10. Silencing of aphid genes by dsRNA feeding from plants
11. Management of rice planthoppers through recent advanced research
